The Group for Contemporary Music was founded by Charles Wuorinen and Harvey Sollberger in 1962.
"Listed on the Sixth Season Flyer were the 'Performers with The Group for Contemporary Music at Columbia University' indicating that the size of the ensemble was now twenty-nine musicians. The most significant addition to the list of performers was that of cellist Fred Sherry, who was listed on the season flyer as 'Frederick Sherry.' Sherry had first appeared as a performer with The Group on the Fromm Concert of commissioned works at the end of the Fifth Season. Sherry was to remain a very significant performer and member of The Group throughout the rest of its thirty year history." -from Susan Deaver's thesis
Recordings Fred Sherry made with the Group include Wuorinen's Chamber Concerto for Cello and 10 Players and Babbitt's Groupwise
